Week 5 = 09/21/07

Today in class we went over chapter four (data entry and data sources) and chapter seven (digital data). The lecture took about two and a half hours to complete due to the amount of data in each chapter. Of course there was breaks added into the lecture for us to stretch our legs and get some water. The labs we did were chapter fiftteen and chapter sixteen in the GTKA book. During lab time, the instructor announced that on November ninth AB Tech is going to have a GIS day. That is the day that all the GIS "big wigs" from the city are going to meet on the campus and have displays, geo type domes, and demos that we can destory (test). The "event" is going to be from 9am - 2pm. Since this is in our class time, our class is going to be run crowd control (I should bring my pepper spray and nightstick), having class time, and looking at all the "owe....awe" displays. I wonder how much stuff they will actually trust me to handle?

Week 4 = 09/14/07

Today was our first test for the GIS class. Due to a series of events that happened this morning, I was unable to attend the test. Since we only have four test this entire semester, I either have to make up the test and receive a lower grade for turning it in late or take a zero on the test and get hundreds on the next three tests. I can decide what I would like to do but when it comes down to it, the instructor has the final say.
